Ryan Nyambe and Lewis Travis were special guests at a local Blackburn Rovers Community Trust session on Tuesday afternoon, helping to inspire girls to get involved in football.

The duo dropped in on the Premier League girls event at Saint Wilfrid's Church of England Academy in Blackburn, taking questions from the participants before getting involved in the session and signing autographs.

The sessions run every week throughout the year, and are open to girls aged 11 and over. Many of the pupils in attendance were Rovers fans, making the afternoon all the more special. 

Speaking at the event, Nyambe said: "It's always great to be involved in events like these for the community and I'm delighted to have been able to come down and get involved.

"Sessions like these are great for the girls and hopefully with us coming down it inspires them to take part regularly.

"Today really showed how much people love the game. I actually saw Lewis get nutmegged by one of the girls, but that's football!"
